It wouldn't be an anime convention if there weren't any good anime to watch. Our video rooms are a great place to sit back and relax while checking out the latest and greatest anime from Japan - from old favorites to the latest releases, from the popular to the obscure. It's almost guaranteed that you will enjoy or discover some great anime in our video rooms.
And that's not all; the video rooms will also be featuring Japanese Dramas (J-dramas), Live-Actions, Fan Parodies, and Anime Music Videos (AMVs).
Video tracks are presented in Japanese with English or French subtitles, or English dubbed. Please consult the video room schedules to find out which titles are presented in which language.
Our screening schedule will feature some of the following theme blocks*:
Anime in Space : As Otakuthon's theme this year is "space," it is only fitting to feature anime that takes place in our solar system and beyond!
Anime Music Videos (AMVs) (Contest Reruns & People's Choice) : Anime Music Videos or AMVs are fan-made music videos that combine anime with an audio soundtrack to create something that is unique and entertaining. This year's AMV Contest screening and "People's Choice" voting will be held on Friday. There will also be a rerun of this year's (2016) AMV Contest screening on Saturday.
Fan Parodies : Fake commercials, short spoofs, live-action bits, abridged shows, twisted movie trailers, and other madness created by fans for your amusement. Both brand new and classic anime fan parodies.
Old School Anime : A selection of anime shows from the 70's, 80's, and the early 90's.
Hakurei Shrine Festival (Touhou) : A selection of doujin anime based off of the Touhou Project game franchise, ranging from re-tellings of the games to musical collections.
Yaoithon Screening Block (shounen-ai) : "Boy's Love" anime series involving romantic situations between two (or more) male characters. (NOTE: Some shows may not be suitable for a younger audience and are rated 16+)**
Yurithon Screenings (shoujo-ai) : A collection of fan favourite anime that features relationships between women.
Horror : From the psychological to simple blood & gore, these anime horror titles will play on your fears and insecurities through eerie music and disturbing imagery that will make you worry what terrible thing is coming next! (NOTE: Shows not suitable for a younger audience and are rated 16+ or 18+)
Hentai Pleasures : Hentai Pleasures returns with even more of an eroticism we all know and love. These are anime series where characters get "down & dirty" and other titillating sensations. (NOTE: Shows are not suitable for a younger audience and are rated 18+)**
Alternative Hentai : Featured will be futanari, bondage, guro and fetishes that may interest our aficionados who are looking for something a little different. (NOTE: Shows not suitable for a younger audience and are rated 18+)**
Late Night Yaoithon : "No point, no plot, no meaning." Explicit boy on boy action, not to be taken seriously. "The corn is at midnight!" (NOTE: Shows not suitable for a younger audience and are rated 18+)**
